Where: Canton, OH
I love that it adds a place where the family can read books, and it looks like it has always been part of the house. I was able to get plywood for the box frame from my Dad. The most difficult part was matching the arch detail to existing built-in bookshelves that are in the house. We added shelves that can hold books and miscellaneous things. We added a comfortable seat with pillows.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself.
Cost: $100 to $500
